Lots of WIP's - Now Finished!!!

Okay first for those of you that don't know this - WIP - stands for Work In Progress! And I have finished a lot of them! YaY!!! Now onto the finished pictures!

The first is a lacy shawl I made for myself. The pattern is called Tea and Sympathy and I found it on Ravelry. I made it with the blue and turquoise yarn that I used for the Queen Anne's Lace scarf in the post below.

Next are two scarfs - the same pattern but different yarns and colors. This pattern is called Total Torque Scarf. The pattern was part of a free e-book from the Crochet Me website. I made it in Caron's Simply Soft in Autumn Red and Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Greybeard.

Here is the Autumn Red One:

And here is the Greybeard one:

And here is a close up of the stitches:

Next is something I am very proud of and very excited to have created! It is a bee - I got the pattern from Amy's Odyssey The pattern is called Bazzill the Buzzing Bumblebee! I am also working on some other projects from her website for my grapevine tree (that is on my wish list). The projects are crocheted leaves and flowers. I love Bazzill. Since the next scarf is nicknamed "The Rose" - I thought Bazzill looked adorable sitting on The Rose! It is not the best to see The Rose in the picture due to the lighting - but it does look like a rose - trust me! It also helps show how if you roll up this scarf it becomes a Rose! Bazzill was made with scraps of yarn in black, yellow and white - All Red Heart yarn. He has two black 9 mm eyes, a red floss smile and two brown pipe cleaner antennae! Isn't he cute? Now I need to make a few more for some friends!

Next is another one of my scarves I am making for my Heart Sister - Martha. Well so is the Total Torque Scarf above - she is getting the greybeard one. This scarf is called the Oriental Fan Scarf and the pattern can be found at: Sandy's Hook I made it with Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Antique Teal. I couldn't get a good close up view of the stitches but if you look at Sandy's website you can see the stitches better in her pictures.

Next is a pair of butterfly wrist warmers. I made these for my Heart Sister Martha. When she wore them at work her boss fell in love with them - so here is a set for her too! The pattern is called Taming the Butterfly and can be found at Taming the Butterfly

Next is a bunch of Easter Egg Stands with those little plastic eggs in them. Aren't they precious? The pattern can be found at:

And last but by no means least - I was in a doily exchange in one of my crochet groups. I am beyond awed by the beautiful doily I received from Chris. It is lovely and it is PINK! My favorite color - I love it so much! Chris' blog is at: Chris' Crochet I so hoped it showed up in the lovely pink - but on my screen it doesn't!

That is it for now - goodness that's a lot! I need to get to updating much faster in the future!
